Not only that, but this appears to go even further. By essentially
"compiling" all these GNU utilities into one executable, there's a
violation of the GPL to the extent that the code used to do that does
not appear to be "Open Source". Double Whammy here.
And by the way - I AM a lawyer. (Member of the Michigan Bar
Association in Good Standing).
I noticed that but i was wondering if these were actually cygwin tools.
Has anyone verified that?
Thinstall Studio Help - see page 60 for registry entries
Also from another site:
"To demonstrate the power of Thinstall the company has produced Unix
Tools <http://thinstall.com/unix_tools/>, a collection of 18 of the most
useful Cygwin tools packaged into a single 1.1MB (floppy sized) EXE file
that runs without any installation process."
